Unboxing: X-Wing: C-ROC Crusier

Scum & Villainy are ready to play with the “Big Boys” – The C-ROC is now available!

The C-ROC Cruiser is out and in stores now. If you’re looking for a impressive new ship for Scum, it doesn’t get much bigger than the C-ROC:

Epic play in Star Wars: X-Wing isn’t something that we cover a ton. But the fans that enjoy the larger scale will sing it’s praises if you ask them about it. The game really allows for a lot of different and new interactions that you just don’t see at the 100 point standard level. It also opens up the use of these massive models. And as a model, the C-ROC is really impressive, double for the fact that it’s a pre-painted model.

As far as expansion packs go, this one brings a TON of stuff to the game. But even if you’re not looking to play with the C-ROC this release is still important. I won’t go into all the details here – but this certainly feels like a release that is an attempt to tweak the M3-A “Scyk” Interceptor.

On top of the the “patch cards” for the Scyk, Scum also gets a ton of new crew cards to add to their squads. I think Jabba and Vizago might even show up in more competitive lists – just give it time.

Jabba’s Ability will pay for itself if you load-up on the upgrades in your squad and Vizago will let you swap out your upgrades mid-game which can be extremely powerful. And as more Illicit upgrades come out Vizago is only going to become more powerful.

Overall, I really like this expansion. I would also like to call out the mission Smuggler’s Lament – it’s actually a really good linked campaign. You decisions will impact your squadron and the “allies” you make as well. It seems like a really neat way to play X-Wing in a different way. The C-ROC is in stores now, so if you’re a Scum player go pick one up and let us know how what you think!

C-ROC Cruiser $69.95

Safeguard your fortunes with the C-ROC Cruiser Expansion Pack for X-Wing™! Designed for use in the game’s Cinematic Play and Epic Play formats, the C-ROC Cruiser Expansion Pack contains one C-ROC Cruiser miniature, one M3-A Interceptor miniature with an alternate paint scheme, seven ship cards, thirty upgrade cards, and all the maneuver dials, damage decks, tokens, and game pieces that you need to fly your C-ROC Cruiser and its escort to battle. Additionally, the expansion includes a new campaign for Cinematic Play in which your C-ROC draws the ire of either the Galactic Empire or Rebel Alliance.

 

Which side will you choose? Any real scum will tell you: The side who’s paying the most!
